How do I get a job?

Can I find a permanent job through Personnel Plus, Inc.?

Yes. Hundreds of our employees find permanent work through our service. This varies depending on the type of placement; whether it be temporary, temp to hire, or permanent, and varies depending on the agreement from client to client. Generally, we have agreements with our clients that they will utilize you for a pre-determined number of hours through our service before offering you a position through their company. This provides you ample opportunity to show your superior work ethic and job performance.

We are an equal-opportunity employer. We will not turn you away due to your background, most of our clients work with criminal records dependent on their policies and open position.

Do I need a vehicle?

No. However, reliable transportation will enable you to be offered more assignments, as many assignments are sensitive and/or difficult to reach without reliable transportation. It is important that you arrive at the job on time and demonstrate to us that you have reliable transportation to fulfill the duties that you accept with a job offer.

How long are potential assignments?

Job assignments can vary from hours, days, weeks, months, and even years. You may also receive a chance to be hired by the client company as a full-time employee. Before accepting an assignment, make sure that it fits within your parameters, we will always be transparent about our knowledge of its length. Once an assignment ends, you are required to notify Personnel Plus, Inc. no later than 5 PM on the next business day so that we can keep your file current.

Do I owe Personnel Plus, Inc. money for their services?

There are no fees for our services to new applicants and our employees. Your pay rate is separate from our bill rate to employers we staff for.

How do you pay?

The pay is dependent on your skill level, experience, tools, and related factors. We will tell you the specific hourly wage for each new assignment. The majority of our assignments have a predetermined pay rate set by our client company. Personnel Plus does not set the pay rate and does not deduct any service fees from your wages. You will have the opportunity to deny or accept each assignment. Our minimum starting wage is set by Idaho wage and hour; however, failure to work/complete a full shift, poor performance, unreliability, or violation of company policies may result in the minimum wage for hours worked.

How do I get paid?

We process payroll on a weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, and monthly basis, depending on the client company you work for. Most of our assignments are paid weekly. You will need to present us with an authorized and completed time slip from a client representative where you are placed. You can utilize our free check service, but may also sign up for a direct deposit or request a Visa debit card through Global Cash Card (transitioning to Wisely) which has several no-charge ATMs.

Do I get paid overtime?

Yes.  Any hours worked over 40 hours within 7 consecutive working days will be paid at the standard overtime rate of 1.5 your normal hourly wage.

How much will I work in a week?

Many of our temporary and temp-to-hire assignments offer a set schedule, but this can also depend on many factors including but not limited to skill, transportation, work ethic, willingness, weather, and professionalism.

What do you take out of my checks?

Payroll taxes as determined by Federal, State, and local requirements, any court-ordered garnishments, and any insurance you may choose to sign up for through us.

Do I need tools?

If you want to work within a specific trade or skill then you will need the tools appropriate for that trade or skill, then you will need the tools appropriate for that trade or skill. These tools may be provided to you for use with a signed deduction form that may be charged to you if the tools are not returned at the end of the assignment.

Do I have to go to your office to get work?

No. Once you have completed the application and orientation assignment you may report your availability and accept assignments via phone. We are working on a text and email system as well.

Who is my actual employer?

When we send you to a client we become the employer of record. This means that we take care of payroll taxes, workers’ compensation, and unemployment insurance. Any questions involving you, the associate, must then be directed to Personnel Plus, Inc.

Do I have to stay at the job if I do not like it?

No. However, unless it is a safety consideration you will need to complete the shift you are on and then inform our office that you do not want to return to that job assignment.

What is the Hazard Communication Standard?

The Hazard Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) communication standard implements the “Right to Know Act” related to the workplace. The code sets requirements for information and training with hazardous chemicals used in the workplace. Federal law requires all states to comply with hazard communication regulations.

What do I do if I am sick or otherwise cannot make it to a job?

We expect as much notification as possible but require at least one hour’s notice. Call our office and explain the situation. If it is after hours or all lines are busy PLEASE leave a message detailing your name, contact number, and a message explaining the situation.

Do I need to have my P.P.E. (Personal Protective Equipment) to go to work?

Yes. We at Personnel Plus, Inc. take safety very seriously. If you do not have P.P.E., we will be happy to provide you with it. We do not provide boots. Any employees of Personnel Plus, Inc. that arrive at a job site without their P.P.E. will be paid minimum wage for that day.

What if I am injured on the job?

Per our Safety Policy, you are required to immediately inform your job site supervisor and immediately contact Personnel Plus, Inc. if you are injured on the job. If the accident is after hours, each office provides after-hours emergency contact mobile numbers. If you fail to follow our safety policy and fail to inform your supervisor by the end of the shift when the accident occurred, we may deny the claim. Workplace accidents must be properly investigated by the client and Personnel Plus as we maintain workers’ compensation insurance for all our employees. You are required to complete a “first report of injury” within 48 hours of the incident. Failure to complete this report within 48 hours may result in denial of the claim by our company. Depending on the severity, your Personnel Plus supervisor or client supervisor will direct you to proper care. Serious medical emergencies should go directly to the local hospital emergency room, all other injuries must be treated by our local Medical Providers. Failure to adhere to the company-directed medical providers may result in denial of medical charges.

Do you have a drug and alcohol policy?

Yes. The use of drugs and alcohol in the workplace creates a danger for all of those involved. Your safety and the safety of others are always in danger IF drugs and alcohol are present. We perform pre-assignment drug testing and random and post-accident testing. We are a “Drug-Free Workplace!”
